"Brandon committed to IU," Illinois Warriors head coach Larry Butler told Scout.com. McGee presently checks in at No. 95 on Scout.com pre-summer Top 100.
McGee is one of those guys who hasn't hit his stride but has shown to be a good player through the end of his high school year and on into the AAU circuit. "Brandon had a very good spring," Butler said. "He was under the radar when we first hit the circuit but he started emerging as a guy with some serious tools by the time July hit. He was rapidly gaining his confidence.
And Indiana moved swiftly this summer to press him for a pledge. Butler feels like it's a good spot for him because of who he can be and the help he'll have in reaching his potential. "Kelvin Sampson will get the maximum out of him.
"He's a long armed guy that can make some perimeter shots and shoot the 3. His best basketball is ahead of him. He can be a very versatile player and he's a perfect fit for the Big Ten in that league. Right now he doesn't really have a set position, he's just a combo forward."
